Coach Dan Fitzgerald

It was very sad to wake up this morning and hear that Coach Fitz had passed away. I did not know him personally but remember him on the sidelines during Gonzaga games. Other than Sweet Lou, there was not a more entertaining coach to watch. The stories I heard about him were always centered around his love for Gonzaga basketball. RIP Coach Fitz.
